Rush discusses his own recovery experience on how he changed his mind set to be positive and his peers helping in workshops and seminars. How he used networking and his sponsor to get his high school diploma, a janitor job that lead to a Superior Service award, which eventually took him to the Stride program on a full ride from the NIH to American University in the school of Business. Tune in to hear how Rush attainted these opportunities and became employed at the National Institute of Health (NIH).
